About this collection

The Record began as a monthly magazine of the Chico State Normal School in March of 1896 under the title of The Normal Record, and soon became a quarterly, then in 1914, a semi-annual publication. The Record attained its recognizable “yearbook” form when it began to be published annually in 1919. When the school became Chico State College in 1922 The Normal Record became the Record. The Record was then published annually until 1970, when, due to rising costs, publication of the yearbook ceased. It was revived again in 1976 and sustained publication until 1997 when the last edition was printed.

The Record is an unsurpassed source for the history and culture of the university. This online collection now contains all the volumes (1896-1997).

The Normal Record, from 1896 to 1919 are scanned and enhanced by OCR (Optical Character Recognition) which allows this resource to be full text searchable. The 1920 to 1997 Records, are being continuously digitized and processed, so some may be searchable, and some may not. Do continue to check Chico Digital Collections for updates.

All of these volumes are available to the public for viewing in the Special Collections Department of the Meriam Library.
